Byron Maxwell Bolsters Eagles Pass D, But Questions Loom Vs. Run

There aren't too many questions about the Eagles' front seven on defense. Spry, run-smashing Brandon Graham (23 run stops, 39 quarterback hurries) demonstrates the backfield intrusion that easily upgrades over aging headhunter Trent Cole.

Three plays that show what Byron Maxwell brings to the Philadelphia Eagles

A lot of people seem to think that the Philadelphia Eagles overpaid for Byron Maxwell in free agency. Nevermind the fact that he was the best cornerback on the market in a bad year for cornerbacks, but that’s the perception among many analysts. Not I. My first love is the Seahawks and I’ve had the pleasure to see what Maxwell can do over the last few years, and I can say that...
